Thu September 20
Northcote Social Club

The annual experimental music showcase ''Everybody talks about the weather'' returns to Melbourne on Thu Sept 20 at the Northcote Social Club. The blistering 2012 edition will feature the first ever Oz performance from Norwegian noise legend LASSE MARHAUG. Mr. Marhaug has made some of the most fantastic ear-splitting music over the past 20 years and has contributed to well over 200 cd, lp and cassette releases both as a solo artist and with a flurry of other bands and collaborators (from acts likeJazzkamer, Sunn O))) and Kevin Drumm). According to him, speaking in noise is not speaking in tongues, but ''a celebration''. You don't want to miss this!
OREN AMBARCHI will present the first ever live performance of KNOTS the epic centrepiece of his recent release on Touch ''Audience Of One.'' Described by UK music mag Mojo as the ''undoubted standout on the Australian guitarist's stunning new album - nothing can prepare you for its awesome power'', this version will feature JOE TALIA on drums and a string quartet led by JAMES RUSHFORD. 
Together with BRENDAN WALLS, Ambarchi will also lead their guitar army project HUSBANDS. 20 guitarists and a meat & potato rhythm section plan to help you, the listener, reach transcendence via their massed just-intonation guitars creating beautiful harmonic clouds in conjunction with the propulsive repetition of the bass and drums. Yowza!
In amongst it all is a solo set from guitar signal annihilator MARCO FUSINATO. Described as 'extending the traditional language of the guitar to distressed oblivion, unleashing tsunamis of ecstatic free noise’, the Fusinato experience is guaranteed to detonate your mind. 
The 2012 edition of 'Everybody talks about the weather' promises to be an unforgettable event, don't miss it!
